I don’t know about you but I am sick of hearing about how great Notre Dame is. Everyone should be talking about how great Notre Dame was. If you think about it, they haven’t been worth a damn since Lou Holtz left town. Honestly who is the last great Notre Dame Player to do anything in the NFL?
They don’t win Heisman Trophy’s anymore, they don’t win National Championships anymore, and they don’t win many games anymore. So what is with all this hype? Every season they come into college football with one of the best 5 recruiting classes in the country and every year they stink up the joint. So who do you blame? So far they have been blaming coaches as they have had more head coaches than just about anyone in the country since 1990. Blaming coaches didn’t work so they have now started blaming players. Coaches yelling and cussing out players at the most prestigious Catholic institution in the country. Hey guess what Notre Dame fans, The Rocket, The Four Horsement, and Joe Montana aren't walking through that door any time soon.
Here is my solution to the Fighting Irish. First of all you need to lose the television deal. Watching you lose on NBC week after week can’t be good for recruiting. Next you need to join a conference. You don’t really play any big games anymore as you aren’t worthy of the big game. Maybe you should join the ACC and become a mediocre team. You might beat Wake Forest on their down year or you might even beat N.C. State once every 3 years as well. You aren’t what you think you are anymore. Maybe joining a conference will give you some coaching stability as well. Just playing random teams on a yearly basis makes it hard to scout and hard to game plan around. At least knowing who your opponents will be from time to time may make life a little easier in the near future.
I hate to be the one to break this to you but you haven’t had a legitimate star from your university since Tim Brown. Yeah it’s been that long. My advice to you is to take yourself out of the spotlight. Put yourself in a situation where your legacy can remain in tact. Until this happens you will be that 6 – 6 team year after year. Let’s face it, that has nothing legendary attached to it.
